Order, Swoon, Envision, Ponder, and Sympathize
Interior Portraits: Victoria Hagan, the Interior Design Hall of Famer's first foray into publishing. She produces the gold standard of timeless elegance, in classic american style. The book is available for pre-order, with an October 12th release date.
Table Settings: Alberto Pinto, a preeminent tastemaker in France known for his range of design from minimalist simplicity to perfected traditionalism, shows us how to set the table. I am particularly interested in the intimate, informal ones...done beautifully.
Martha's Vineyard Contemporary Living: Boston architects, Keith Moskow and Robert Linn, showcase twenty-five new houses that extend beyond the typical vision of cedar-shingled cottages on Martha's Vineyard. I find myself envisioning a new life of simplicity and order, where true verve is about who you are with, and what existence you have within the environment that surrounds you.
Tinkers: Paul Harding induces reflection about our elders and family. The recent death of my own grandfather at age 89, drew me into this story. It was a two-night read, that I couldn't put down. Honestly beautiful. Picked up my copy at Bunch of Grapes (thanks for the recommend, Joanne).
Loving Frank: Nancy Horan's novel features an intimate look into the past life of Frank Lloyd Wright through the fictionalization of the life of Mamah Borthwick Cheney, the "other woman". A scandalous affair that almost cost the great architect his career. Recommended to me by the accommodating staff at the Edgartown Library. Still on check-out, so you'll have to wait...
Support local, buy local...all are available to purchase/order at Bunch of Grapes, Edgartown Books, and at all of our exceptional, local libraries.
